Genesis Seminar

We are reading through the book of Genesis, the first book in the Bible. In addition to contributions from class participants, we are also considering insights from the German scholars Gerhard von Rad, Claus Westermann, the American scholar Victor Hamilton, and of course, Martin Luther. We are also considering insights offered by the Jewish scholar, Nahum Sarna, in his Genesis commentary.

Sometimes we summarize key points, or fun artwork, which may be found on the slides listed below.
